1 cup walnuts or hazelnuts
1 cup almonds
10-12 dates (more for sweeter)
1/2 to 1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
Half an apple (diced)
1. In a Vitamix (or food processor), combine all the ingredients except the diced apples. This should come out as a thick, chewy texture. It requires some help with a large spoon as it’s mixing because the dates keep it from moving. But do the best you can.
2. Empty into a bowl and add in the diced apples. Mix with clean hands preferably.
3. Take a golf ball size of the dough and spread in a cookie shape with your hands and place them in the dehydrator. I sprinkled some extra cinnamon over mine, which is optional.
4. Set temperature at 145 F and let it dry for 7 hours.
5. Turn them over and repeat for another 7 hours. If you like them extra soft and chewy, about 10 hours would be perfect. More of a crisp will need the 14 hours with an additional hour sitting out on a plate. Or you could just adjust it to the temperature you’re used to.
These are nice and chewy!
They harden up real good when left out on a plate for a couple hours. Either way is really good.
This will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth!
Mine made approximately 15-18 cookies but the dough expands really well, so it makes quite a bit.
I hope you like these just as much as I do!
